“We live in a house of mirrors and think we are looking out the windows.”~ Fritz Perls
Who are you looking at? Who is looking back at you? Who are you looking for?
On some level or another, all of us are seeking ourselves whether we know it or not.
We all have beliefs, ideas, thoughts and attitudes which govern our thinking, our knowing and our living. Changing our thinking, our long held beliefs can dramatically change our daily lives.
Try looking at it this way…..We live in a house of mirrors and think we are looking out the windows.
Take a moment to think about what this sentence on self reflection means for you.
It is talking about how we perceive ourselves and our surroundings – how we fail to see that life reflects us back to ourselves.
This saying about self reflection helps us to become empowered.
If we see that our negative feelings towards others are reflecting back to ourselves our own sense of negativity then we can do something to help ourselves forward. By continuously looking out the window and putting the ‘blame’ on others we fail to utilize all the power in the moment.
Changing our perception of the problem by seeing the reality as it is reflected by us and to us, brings empowerment, change, discovery and consciousness.
This gorgeous journey towards Positivity is what the heart wants and the soul yearns!
There are monsters hiding around every corner and they are mostly the monsters of our own making – our ego self and all its responses to our lived experiences.
One of our deepest psychological needs is our need to return to our truest Positive self, and people are more hungry for it than ever.
Seeking ourSelf is the best journey we can embark upon.
